Abstract

The Common Good is a powerful notion inherited from the social thought of the Catholic Church that later radiated in the democracies of the West and in the conceptions of human rights. Despite the frequent use of the term “common good”, it is not as simple and easy to understand as it seems and in the daily life of our institutions it is usually understood in two very limited ways: either as the best decision at any given time, or expression of the 'general interest'. In fact, in concrete practice we usually leave the responsibilities for the Common Good in the hands of the authority and that of its governing circle.
